In love with my new guest (shh.. it’s a Hummingbird!!)

Hummingbird nest Yes! There is a tiny hummingbird nest in my backyard! It is sooo exciting! I am positively thrilled to have a bird nest in just first year of home ownership… and that too a Hummingbird!!

We see quite a few hummingbirds in our garden even when we don’t have much flowers or any bird feeder. The nest is actually on the side-yard where I keep all my gardening supplies, soil, compost, unused planters and what not. From last few days whenever I go there to get some soil or something, I see a hummingbird just hovering around me. At first I thought she isn’t afraid of me that is why she is there, later I realized she was guarding her nest.

Can you see her in first pic? I got a close up too! πŸ™‚

Since then I read quite a lot about Hummingbird nesting and nest watching in general.  I am going to take extreme precaution so that my little guests don’t get afraid :). It is such a privilege to get to see these amazing creatures so up close.

You see the window in the first pic? That’t my kitchen and I can make out from there if mommy bird is home or not ;).

Did you ever had a bird nest in your home? I would love to hear your experiences. πŸ™‚

  1. Love your Hummingbird post. We have a Willy wagtail in our backyard that moved in a few years ago and never left. He flutters and chirpes uncontrollable around your head anytime your outside. He has become a big part of the yard, me is really funny to watch and a little cheeky, but I think he likes us and we sure like him. Enjoy your Hummingbirds, what a joy:)
